Revlite® – EO Q-switched Nd:YAG Laser
RevLite’s unique technology sets it apart from standard lasers on the market. Most aesthetic medical lasers use longer pulses, subjecting the skin to excessive and potentially harmful heat. RevLite’s EO Q-switched Nd:YAG produces very rapid, short pulse widths of energy. This limits the healthy tissue’s exposure to thermal build-up for safe, fast and effective treatment.
Revlite produces a PhotoAcoustic (light/sound) action to target the ink molecule. This is different from the photothermal (light/heat) action delivered by other lasers. This state-of-the-art technology makes your laser tattoo removal treatment rapid.
Our advanced in-treatment cooling system assures your treatment is as comfortable as possible.
Why treatments are spaced apart
Treatments will be at intervals of 6-8 weeks. Once the laser has targeted and hit the ink in the tattoo, the body’s own natural processes start to remove the shattered ink particles. If treatments are closer together the tattoo won’t respond as well as it could.
Your commitment to tattoo removal is very important
Regular treatments at intervals of 6-8 weeks will lead to a progressively faded tattoo. Sometimes patients are frustrated after a few treatments that their tattoo is not fading fast enough. It is important to remember it is a course of treatment and only at the end will you see the final result.
Laser Tattoo Removal Prices
All treatments require a £25 patch test.
Your individual treatment plan and exact price will be discussed at your initial consultation.
The RevLite® Q-switched Nd:YAG laser removes tattoo ink with light energy directed at the tattooed area for a fraction of a second, passing harmlessly through the upper layer of the skin and targeting the tattoo ink directly.
The speed of the energy delivered produces a vibration that shatters the ink into tiny particles which is then absorbed and removed through the body’s natural processes. The RevLite® laser provides maximum tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin intact.
RevLite® can remove professional, homemade, traumatic and surgical tattoos.
The number of treatments you’ll need depends on several factors including:
- The amount, depth, colour and type of ink used
- Whether your tattoo is professional or homemade
- The location on your body and skin type
In addition, the way your body’s immune system reacts to treatment is unique. Your body will break down ink pigment at its own rate and this can be difficult to predict.
Treatments are eight weeks apart and the estimated number of treatments will be calculated and discussed with you during your consultation.
Treatment time is short. As a guide, an area 2 sq ins (5cm sq) will take approximately five minutes to treat. Your appointment for this size will be no more 15 minutes which includes pre and post-treatment procedures.
In most cases yes. Greater than 95% fading can be accomplished.
However, it is important to know that there are many types of tattoo inks in use, none of which are regulated, and many tattoo artist’s custom-blend their ink, making it impossible to accurately predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo.
The RevLite® laser emits light in very fast short pulses. The impact of the energy is described as similar to the snap of a rubber band on the skin or the same sensation as getting the tattoo but it takes far less time.
Before treatment, we recommend using an anaesthetic cream which numbs the area and lessens the sensation. This, coupled with our advanced in-treatment cooling system, assures the experience is as comfortable as possible.
An antibacterial ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area immediately after treatment. You may experience soreness, redness and a slight swelling immediately after treatment but this should pass after a few days. Full aftercare instructions will be given which will help you in the days after treatment.
Most patients are thrilled after their initial few treatments, but as they go through the middle stages can become impatient. It is important to know that you will not get the same effect after each treatment as although the process remains consistent your body can react differently from treatment to treatment. Follow the care instructions we give you and you should enjoy thorough tattoo removal in the shortest amount of time.
I did some research and liked what I read and heard about Discover Laser, so booked a consultation. After Miguel’s full explanation of treatment, I was keen to get started. Months later I was tattoo-free with no scarring and 10 years on couldn’t be happier. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

This has got to be the best clinic I have ever been to, I have had six laser sessions to remove semi-permanent eyebrows and they have done a fantastic job. I love going, they are so professional and everybody is so friendly, they make you feel very comfortable on arrival. Would never go anywhere else now. Look out I will be back.
